Grow Strong in Faith

Grow Strong in Faith

Sometimes we think we should have strong faith right away. And that belief might cause some to shy away from faith altogether because they think they’re not cut out for faith. But faith is a gift from God, to begin with. And very few of us start out strong in faith. We slowly grow strong in faith. It’s a process empowered by the Holy Spirit and not about our own merits. Faith is based on grace from start to finish….

The Secret of Christian Living

The Secret of Christian Living

Do you want to know the secret of Christian living? How can some people live according to the will of God? The fact is no one can live up to the high standards. But would you rather lower the expectations of Christian living than learn the secret of Christian living? I hope you choose the latter option. Because even if Christian living is impossible for us, it’s very possible for God. And he provides us everything we need for victorious Christian…

Included in Christ

Included in Christ

Are you included in Christ? If yes, you’re part of a very rich inheritance. All the riches of Christ are yours when you heard the good news of your salvation, and as a result, believed in Him. If no, know that all are included in the invitation to come to Christ. All are welcome just as they are. Christ has everything you need to be made right with God and even that is not all. He has everything to heal…

From Emptiness to Fulfillment

From Emptiness to Fulfillment

If you look for fulfillment in yourself, eventually you will be disappointed. And that’s the opposite of what the popular kids in the world tell you. Somehow we are to find ourselves by looking into our hearts. That’s not how it works in my experience. Instead, when you’re tired, all you can find in yourself is emptiness. Not happiness, not fulfillment, not purpose. But emptiness. And that’s why so many people turn into some kind of drug, whether it is…

Be Strong in Jesus and Pray Hard

Be Strong in Jesus and Pray Hard

No matter what you’re facing, be strong in Jesus and pray hard. You might ask, what does it mean to be strong in Christ? Such a good question. It means you draw strength from Jesus, not from your own resources. And as we know his resources are limitless. Hence we are both encouraged and empowered at the same time. Then we are ready to move on to praying hard. In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from…

Based on Faith

Based on Faith

Too often I meet Christians who have not embraced fully the freedom Christ offers to us. Lovely Christian people who are paralyzed by fear of possibly doing something that would keep them away from heaven. Like God’s grace would not be powerful enough to cover them if they are not perfect Christians. Why have they not been told it’s not about their religiosity? It’s about the power of God. We can’t save ourselves no matter how hard we try. Thank…

Motivated by the Holy Spirit

Motivated by the Holy Spirit

What motivates you? Inner motivation beats outer motivation. So if you only do things because other people tell you so, your New Year resolutions won’t last. But if you really want change yourself, you have better chance to succeed. So it is in our spiritual life. It does matter what/who we are motivated by. Watchman Nee points out “Many saints cannot distinguish inspiration from emotion. Actually, these two can be defined readily. Emotion always enters from man’s outside, whereas inspiration originates…

Spiritual Growth – Deeper into God’s Grace

Spiritual Growth – Deeper into God’s Grace

Here are some observations on the Apostle Paul’s spiritual growth. It was not something flashy or quick; it took a lifetime. And the end result was not something the world thinks was necessarily that great. Paul started to talk less about him and more of Christ. He became more aware of his short comings and his perpetual need of grace. His spiritual growth was not up but down. Deeper into God’s grace. This is spiritual growth, folks I’ve got three different…

Life Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Life Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Inspiration is a wonderful thing. Without it, any creative work would be nearly impossible. My ultimate inspiration comes from the Lord. Like James Stalker has said, “How poor a guide enthusiasm is when it is not informed with the mind and spirit of God.” We need the Holy Spirit to guide us and inspire us. Hence, my agent of inspiration is the Holy Spirit who breathes life into me and through me. Without him, any spiritual life would be impossible….

Live a Life Worthy of the Lord

Live a Life Worthy of the Lord

‘You are worth it’, says a commercial to get you to buy a product. The number one way to get into debt is to think you deserve to have certain things. Don’t try to buy your worth. You are worthy just because you are made by God Almighty. You worthiness comes from the Lord. There’s nothing you can buy or do that would make you worthy of God but his grace. But his grace is all you ever need to…
